How to Park Your HOPR Bike
Don’t Make the End of Your Ride Someone Else’s Trip
Cars and motorcycles have parking spaces. Heck, they have entire lots for them to just sit there when they aren’t in use. Although YouTube and TikTok have some pretty interesting videos to the contrary, most people wouldn’t even think of parking their car on the sidewalk in front of their apartment or pulling up and blocking a driveway. Just like a car or a motorcycle, proper parking of HOPR vehicles at the end of your ride assures your convenient ride doesn’t end in someone else’s inconvenience or a tripping hazard.
Parking Solutions Today
Cities such as Cleveland, Tampa, Phoenix, Rochester and Atlanta have no lack of public bike racks throughout their cities available for both, private bicycle owners and bike share riders alike.
Dockless bike share bikes may also be parked in the 2 feet of sidewalk closest to the curb known as the furniture zone in most major cities. This clears the way for pedestrians while allowing bike share trips to start and end at convenient locations.
Furthermore, bike sharing parking boxes or bike sharing hubs can be identified by painted markings on the ground and sometimes they are even marked by signage and bollards… we like to call them ponds!
Please park your HOPR bike or scooter at any designated bike sharing parking box to guarantee you have not created a hazard for other vehicles or pedestrians. There’s an incentive to $weeten the deal if you do so. In some cases, neglecting to park in a designated area, the sidewalk furniture zone, or a public bike rack may incur an additional penalty fee..
Parking Solutions Tomorrow
HOPR is planning for the future of sustainable development and mobility devices. We here at HOPR have tested automated helmet vending machines for bike share riders, self charging bicycle battery docking stations using the sun’s stored energy, and even scooters that can pick themselves back up if tipped over. We’ll keep tinkering and working with cities and communities across North America to find a solution for cyclists, scooter riders, pedestrians, and motorists alike.
